2015 UCLA Football Draftees
LB Eric Kendricks, 45th (Round 2), Minnesota Vikings
DE Owamagbe Odighizuwa, 74th (Round 3), New York Giants
QB Brett Hundley, 147th (Round 5), Green Bay Packers
This 2016 NFL Draft was a bit thinner for the UCLA Foootball team, yet that did not matter looking at the the players that left.
Kendricks was a big selection for Minnesota as he was matched up with his teammate from the previous year, Anthony Barr. As UCLA’s All-Time leading tackler, Kendricks was more than ready to jump to the NFL.
He was able to bring his work ethic and aggression into the pros which helped him thrive in his first year as he was named the NFC North Rookie of the Year.
Odighizuwa was a fierce D-lineman who wrecked havoc on opposing offensive lines. Not only was he a big, strong lineman, but his ability to get through the line was uncanny.
As for Hundley, many were concerned with how far he fell in the draft, but where he eventually landed could have been the best spot for him. With Green Bay selecting another Bruin, Hundley was now able to work behind Super Bowl Champion Aaron Rodgers, arguably one of the best football players in the NFL. Now that is a great introduction into the NFL.
